I found this hotel on wotif and fortunately got a pretty good rate. Thats the upside. No one mentioned that the 'resort' ( and I use that word loosely) is in the middle of a pub car park!! A pub that had a DJ blasting away until one on the morning, with the bass on overdrive, the doof doof vibrating through the room and patrons coming and going until all hours, car doors slamming, yelling, you get the picture. Rooms are quite nice and clean, although not as roomy as the pics suggest. The bed was a killer, I had back pain for 3 days afterwards.
I was hugely disappointed as we had planned a nice weekend away but it was spoilt by no sleep and way to much noise.
